The Keegan Family
Bloomington, IL
2 kids
A little bit about us…We are looking for a part-time nanny/sitter for our two boys, aged 5 and 2, in Bloomington IL starting December 2021 or Jan 2022.

Our boys are active and energetic so we need a nanny who is comfortable getting outside with them all year round, no matter the season or the weather. They love riding their bikes and scooters around the neighborhood, playing in the yard and visiting the local playground. They also love to paint, bake, do art projects, snuggle up with books, play cars and trains, do puzzles etc. We need someone who can match their energy and keep them engaged without resorting to TV or screens.

The job will include:
• helping the boys get dressed and fed in the mornings
• helping with preschool drop-off and pick-up for our oldest
• caring for our youngest while his older brother is at preschool
• preparing lunch and snacks
• planning activities for the boys
• cleaning up after play and meals
• light chores (emptying the dishwasher, taking out the trash, putting away the kids’ laundry)
• taking the boys on outings from time to time (library, children’s museum, parks etc).

Both parents frequently work from home so our nanny needs to be comfortable caring for the boys with us around.

Requirements include: Covid vaccination, first aid and infant/child CPR certification (or willingness to complete this before you start), drivers license and own car, references.

Our ideal schedule is 8am-2pm Monday-Thursday but if the job sounds like a good match for you but our schedules don’t align perfectly, please reach out anyway and let’s see if we can work something out.

Types of Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Bloomington, IL

Before you start looking for a nanny job, it's essential to learn about the different types of nannies and how they compare to each other so that you make sure you’re looking for the right opportunities.

The different types of nanny jobs have different nanny responsibilities. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. However, in general, a nanny is responsible for making sure the children's needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to make sure your expectations are aligned with the family.

There are temporary nanny jobs, even seasonal nanny jobs like summer nanny jobs. Beyond seasonal and temporary nanny positions, there are differences between full-time and part-time nanny jobs. The primary difference being the number of hours you spend at your nanny job every week. For full-time nannies, there are options for live in nanny positions and live-out positions in Bloomington. Live-out positions are more common, but each family has their own set of needs that require different types of care, and live in nanny positions can be exactly what some families want. If you're looking to explore live in nanny positions , it's even more important to create a shared set of expectations around hours, responsibilities, and what is expected of you when you're not on the clock.
